Stayed here on my second visit to Cartagena and I won't stay anywhere else for my future trips. Gorgeous hotel, delicious food and very attentive/helpful staff. The hotel is small and intimate and feels special. Perfect location right off of Plaza Santo Domingo. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed at El Marques for four nights and loved every minute. The hotel staff was helpful, the restaurant - Bohemia - served a tasty breakfast each morning and the rooms were plenty big enough and had good AC. The pool area is a tranquil, quiet spot to relax and we both had massages in the Petite Spa. Overall the...

As I left here, the staff were just setting up for a wedding, & it is the perfect place to hold one. Small enough to feel like a home, beautiful enough for stunning photos & with the most helpful staff you could meet. Plus a back history of 1960s famous hedonists that stayed there. What a way to finish a...

I booked El Marques because from the photos it looked like just the type of boutique hotel that I typically enjoy. I've stayed in a similar boutique hotel in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and wanted a similar experience for my friend and I. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by the staff with a refreshing mint lemonade....

My partner & I really enjoyed El Marques. We loved the old style house furnished with modern lounge like furniture, the beautiful tropical garden & lounge music. The atmosphere was perfect for such a relaxed city like Cartagena. We also enjoyed lounging around the pool after a hot days exploration around the city. The pool side bed is a very...

I booked the hotel for me and a group of friends after my wedding in Bogota. The hotel exceeded all my expectations. The service was absolutely amazing! Small hotel 8 rooms with a beautiful courtyard and a nice size pool. The staff was extremely nice and everyone in my group of 8 could not be happier with the hotel selection!...

How cool this place is. The pictures do not do it justice. A perfect blend of old Cartagena history with a modern design aesthetic. Amazing food (probably the best we had in the entire week we were in Colombia). Amazing service--the entire staff from front desk to bartender to maids were so kind and so helpful. We were in room...
